Epic Games’ Rod Fergusson, executive producer on Gears of War 2, has posted over on the official Gears of War forums announcing the release of the Gears of War 2 Title Update 3.

“The much anticipated Title Update 3 is out of certification and is going live on March 24th at 2 AM PST/5 AM EST,” stated Fergusson. “Please remember it takes awhile for the update to propagate so it may take up to several hours after that time before it’s available locally.”

This might also mean you star getting matchmaking connection issues as a result of other players having already downloaded the update. If this happens exit the game and start it up again to initiate the download.

In addition to a host of bug fixes and balancing tweaks, Title Update 3 introduces nine new Achievements – six of which are related to next week’s Snowblind Map Pack. Players will also notice a new 100 level experience rating which is based on player scores in Public matches. The new level of experience appears next to your gamertag, with levels 1 through 99 displayed as numbers and level 100 displayed as an icon.

You’ll find the full change list over on the Gears of War forums.
